a2z: The letter is ‘W’ for Willow and Wendell

Crooked Willow

 This willow tree fascinates me. We planted the small twig of a thing the year our youngest son was confirmed. 

In the summer the branches dip to the ground creating the perfect place to sit on a blanket and pretend. I can do that because I’m a writer, otherwise people might think it a bit odd to see an  woman under the tree staring up at this:

The way the branches twist and turn makes me think of mind mapping a story. The outer beauty of the tree makes me think of people. The way we present a nice outside appearance, but inside we’re twisted, knotted and dying in ways no one knows about. 

Wendell doesn’t see all of the things I do.

 He sees birds.

  1. Glad I made some of you laugh at the end.

    Diana, what a wonderful dream. I could see a willow as a great wedding spot. Now I have a book idea running through my mind. 🙂
    Laury, it would be fun to have another writer sit under the tree and make up stories with me. 🙂
